2017 Breaking and Entering

2 Volunteer Teams are needed to bring “Christmas” to families at North County Solutions for Change!


Girlfriends Care has adopted two apartments for the 2017 Breaking & Entering at Solutions for Change taking place on Tuesday November 28th from 11:30am-4:00pm.   Breaking and Entering is a great way to bring the joy of the holidays to families working hard to break the cycle of homelessness.  Apartments which house some of the newer families to their program will be decorated, and gifts left behind as a surprise and all on the same day.   This joyous event has become very popular with our Girlfriends and friends. Apartments will be assigned on a first-come basis.  


For questions or to register your team contact ellen@girlfriendscare.org.
